Abstract : In this paper, we compare the normal vector field of a compact (oriented) smooth surface S with the normals of a triangulated mesh T whose vertices belong to S. As a corollary, we deduce an approximation of the area of S by the area of T. We apply this result to the restricted Delaunay triangulation obtained with a sample of S. Using Chew's algorithm, we build sequences of triangulations inscribed on S, whose curvature measures tend to the curvature measures of S.
